TIME FOR ACTION
The Congressional Delegations
Should be Informed
as to Arsenal.
BLOCK MORE CONTRACT WORK
Chance for Representatives McKinney
and Dawson to Do Something
for Their Own Districts.
It is not too early to take action
with a view to maintaining the plants
at Rock Island arsenal and. if possible.
increasing the force of men employed
there. As was announced in The Ar
gus Saturday, there are indications that
there will be outside bids for the manu
facture of the small arms, a plant for
which has only recently been opened
up here. At least it seems improbable
that the representatives of the Bethle
hem Steel company were not here on
a pleasure trip exclusively.
Immediate At-tioa Necvwaary.
So far as the representatives of New
England or the western coast are con
cerned, it is probable that no interest
will be shown for the Rock Island ar
senal, and unless there is immediate
action here to line up the representa
tives and senators of Illinois and Iowa
some more contract work will undoubt
Confer With rongrraanirn.
Following the agitation on the part
of The Argus a few months ago, an
nvestigatiia committee was appointed
and it was found that nothing could be
done here, that the commandant is
acting according to orders from th3
ordnance department. It would now
seem expedient to take the matter fur
ther. Congressmen McKinney and
Dawson should be fully informed upon
the situation, that they may take it
into conference with Senators Cullom,
Hopkins. Allison and Dolliver and the
Illinois and Iowa delegations in the
house of representatives.
WANTS TO LEARN CUSTOMS
OF HOTELS IN AMtRlCA
Bright and Ambitious Youth Comes
All the Way from Amsterdam
To Work in Harper.
While Mr. and Mrs. Charles McHugh
were touring abroad last winter, no
subject naturally, was of more interest
to Mr. McHugh. than the conduct ot
European hotels, and while at the Am
stel hotel in Amsterdam, he was im
pressed in particular with a bright
youth, named Henri Deleeuw, the
son of one of those identified
with the management of the hos
telry. The boy was raised in the hotel,
and having ascertained that Mr. Mc
Hugh was a hotel proprietor, was ambi
tious to learn something of the way the
big hotels are run in this country. He
spoke of his ambition to come to Amer
ica and grow up in the hotel business
here. Mr. McHugh took such a fancy
to the boy and was so taken with his
enthusiasm that he talked to his fath
er about permitting him to come to
this country, and received the parent
al consent, with .he result that yester
day Henri arrived at the Harper ready
to get into the ways of American ho
tels. Although a mere youth he had
traveled the entire distance from Am
sterdam alone. He is well educated
and speaks not only the English lan
guage fluently, but is more or less fa
miliar with several other tongues, and
Mr. McHugh hopes to make him a val
uable man. He went to work bright
and early this morning in charge of the
check room and as captain of the bell

to matters not requiring a jury.
